Josh Kemp on the JodyJazz DV NY Tenor 7*

"My JodyJazz DV NY Tenor 7* combines a full and elegant tone with powerful projection, which allows complete freedom of expression. It has an exceptionally free blowing response, on which I never have to strain to get the sound I want throughout the entire range of the instrument. A perfect match for my Conn 10M tenor."
